This week’s ‘Thumbs Up’ recipients

Nick Novosel

Nick Novosel (Mechanical Engineering): Nick helped me out with a prospective ME student. We popped into his office unannounced, and he was able to guide her and give her lots of information. I appreciate him going the extra mile for our prospective students and impressing our alumni parents! — Osra DeLong (Purdue for Life Foundation) 

Melody Carducci and Angie Murphy

Melody Carducci and Angie Murphy (both Purdue Polytechnic Institute): New Computer and Information Technology advisors comprise 60 percent of the staff.

YingKei Hui

YingKei Hui (First Lady): Thank you so much for organizing a wonderful Easter egg hunt that allowed me and my two children to interact with other Boilermaker families while having fun. It was organized purposefully and thoughtfully with what felt like love and pride for the families of Purdue. We really enjoyed ourselves and hope to be a part of future events! Thanks again! — Kandis Chapman (Purdue University Student Health Center)

Sally and her team did their best to advise us and keep us on point in the writing. Both Kim and Sally were a big help in getting a good submission out the door in time. — Lynn Zentner (Network for Computational Nanotechnology)
